2. Former North Carolina men’s lacrosse player Brandon Pierce has turned his passion for the sport and filmmaking into a documentary on Black lacrosse history.
3. World Lacrosse sat down with Team USA star Taylor Cummings as part of its “5 for Towson” video series.
At 5 years old, @tcummings_21 never heard of lacrosse. A year later, she picked up a stick for the first time.
Since then, her hard work, sacrifices and dedication have made her what she is today — one of the best lacrosse players in the world. pic.twitter.com/rD5FMQTZHy
